Enrollement Day 1

Day 1 of enrollment went good.  It is great to see our students and parents again.  I would like to remind all athletes that this year, you will have to have a physical on file as we as a concussion form on file, before you are allowed to practice.  This is a new state rule to have the concussion form, so do not over look PLEASE!!!!!! 

Practice will begin August 15th for all fall sports.

Visit our website http://www.usd357.org/ for a link to both physical and concussion forms.  Also, if you have not been to the new website, you must check it out.  A new look for the 2011-12 school year that will make everyone happy.  Look forward to seeing everyone on the 18th!

Back to school

August 1st, I head back to school.  Wondering where the summer went, up in heat, I guess.  I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and getting the 2011-12 school year underway.  There are some good things coming this year.

Snow day #2

Snow day #2 will be much better than todays.  I will sleep in and my kids will not make me want to stand outside in the snow without a coat.  I know that the idea of snow days is a good thing but sometimes when you have 4 kids locked in a house, you run out of things to do in a hurry.  A house is only so big and there are only so many things that you can do inside, haha.

By the way, our games scheduled for today have been rescheduled for February 10th.  Everything stays the same, home game and everything starts at 4:30pm with JV basketball.  Make plans to be there.  This may be the shortest homecoming week in history!!!!

Snow Days

So our school cancelled today because of this huge snow storm rolling thru the midwest.  It is sooo cold today that me and the kids can't enjoy the snow that is coming down.  I wonder if school will be cancelled tomorrow because of the snow and wind chill out there?  What are some things that you can do when you have a snow day, locked in your house with 4 kids?

Thank goodness for the Wii and its ability to purchase new games or you can even use netflix and watch TV shows or movies!  How technology is sooooo cool, really you dont even need to leave your house.  As long as you have food and family and the electric is working, then you can do anything you want right from the comfort of your living room.  How I do love the 21st Century!!!!!

District In-service

Today we had a district in-service.  Kevin Honeycutt came and spoke to our staff on a couple of different issues, bullying and cyber bulling and then 21st century tools/learning.  It was one of the best district in-services that I have been a part of.  Our technology didnt work the greatest but none the less everything worked out great.  I think our teachers took a way new ideas and more tools to use in their own classrooms which is always a good thing.  What makes a great in-service?  Is it the motivation factor, ideas, or is it just a day out of the classroom? 

I think that having something motivate you as a teacher/administrator/whatever role you have is so very important.  Kevin brings stories, videos, and personal experience to this meeting and in other meetings I have seen him at, and that is what I believe makes a great in-service.  Something that is close to teachers hearts and makes them want to go out and try new things, that is what education is all about.  I hope that our staff takes what we have learned today and makes Belle Plaine the best school for our kids it can possible be. 

Kevin, thank you for sharing your personal experiences and knowledge with us.  You are truely in it for the kids and your continued drive to make us and our students better is what makes you special.  I would recommend anyone looking for a true motivator and leader for kids, you should call Kevin Honeycutt!

Homecoming Week

Big week for our boys.  We have two home games against chaparral and then our homecoming game on Friday against Douglass.  Hope to keep the winning momentum going coming of two big wins at our mid-season tournament.  Our current record is 5-8.
